TvN is really on a roll lately with their casting and storylines. 

If the lead character was a former gangster does that mean that he'll pull no punches? :wink:


Very much looking forward to seeing LJG onscreen again and hopefully we'll see him in action scenes as well. Thanks @LyraYoo. Looks like we'll be hanging out together again down the track. :D

@Chellsee, same here. Fighting for his new project ^^ 


Also an excerpt of his interview (he spoiled it already days ago but then we need confirmation so..)



About his standards in choosing a drama, he said, "It has to be fun and it must be able to deliver fun and emotion to the viewers. Looking only at the big picture will lead to mistakes not only from me, but the production as well. I also think I should attempt at many challenge before I blame anyone else for something". Lee Joon-gi is rumored to be full of passion. "I am grateful to the person who gives me the opportunity as a leading actor. I only express my gratitude that way, but people overpriase me. Filming sites are like my playgrounds. I always want to take home good memories of me and that people that I work with". Finally he said, "I love spring. As an actor who gives happiness to people, I want to increase that happiness"



@40somethingahjumma yay ! I am so happy that JG accepted another project. I guess his jujitsu will put into use  :tongue: .  Nice to see you again ^^

Official] Lee Joon-gi confirmed to star in ‘Lawless Attorney’ … Special reunion with the director of ‘Time Between Dog and Wolf’


After generating buzz with the news that its production began, tvN’s “Lawless Attorney’ is finally about to set sail by confirming Lee Joon-gi’s casting in the leading role. “Lawless Attorney” marks a reunion between director Kim Jin-min and Lee Joon-gi 11 years after “Time Between Dog and Wolf” and is garnering attention as another turning point in the history of Korean drama.


Slated to premiere in May following tvN’s “Live,” new Saturday/Sunday drama “Lawless Attorney” (directed by Kim Jin-min, written by Yoon Hyun-ho, and produced by Studio Dragon & Logos Film) announced Tuesday (Feb 27th) that “actor Lee Joon-gi confirmed to star in ‘Lawless Attorney’ as the leading role ‘Bong Sang-pil.’”

“Lawless Attorney” is about a lawless (無法) lawyer who initially puts violence above law but grows into a true lawyer who uses martial arts (武法) by risking even his life to stand up to unchecked power. Set against the imaginary city of ‘Giseong,’ it is an exciting, richly imagined story of ‘a lawyer who wields the power of law to fight lawlessness.


Returning to the small screen after a hiatus of about a year with “Lawless Attorney,” Lee Joon-gi particularly finds himself the center of attention. ‘Bong Sang-pil,’ played by Lee Joon-gi, is a lawyer who is hell bent on revenge against a powerful circle of insiders. Having witnessed his mother’s brutal death as a child, Bong Sang-pil is consumed by pain and anger and considers avenging his mother’s death ‘the purpose of his life’ and ‘absolute mission.’ He constantly switches between a violent outlaw who takes advantage of the lawless and a lawyer who pursues justice using the righteousness of the law. Lee Joon-gi’s expected to deliver a transformative performance.


Netizens are already wild with excitement to see this special reunion between director Kim Jin-min and Lee Joon-gi, who were the heroes behind “Time Between Dog and Wolf.” For Lee Joon-gi, working with director Kim was a turning point in his acting career. Known for an exceptional knack for analyzing his characters and proven acting skills, Lee Joon-gi is looking to create another ‘legendary character’ with the help of director Kim, a master of visual artistry.


Joining them is writer Yoon Hyun-ho, who not only drew 20 million to the big screen with movies “The Attorney” and “Confidential Assignment,” but also ruled the small screen with drama “Remember – War of the Son.” The trio represents the perfect combination of director, writer and actor, and expectations are rapidly growing whether their collaboration will work its magic on the small screen.


The producers behind tvN’s “Lawless Attorney” said, “Director Kim Jin-min and Lee Joon-gi are reuniting in 11 years through ‘Lawless Attorney.’ It’s their second collaboration after ‘Time Between Dog and Wolf’ and they share profound confidence in each other,” adding, “Especially Lee Joon-gi’s public appeal will help him embody this lawless lawyer switching his weapon between law and fist perfectly. Please look forward to his transformative performance.”


With Lee Joon-gi cast in the leading role, “Lawless Attorney” has finally set sail and will premiere in May following tvN’s “Live.”

This part is what is picking my curiosity:


"He constantly switches between a violent outlaw who takes advantage of the lawless and a lawyer who pursues justice using the righteousness of the law. Lee Joon-gi’s public appeal will help him embody this lawless lawyer switching his weapon between law and fist perfectly."


Does this mean we will see something like this:

The handsome righteous lawyer who has a sweet partnership with the female paralegal(supposedly Seo Ye Ji)

like Agent Lee Soo Hyun in Time Between Dog and Wolf


and the other persona:

like Kay in Time Between Dog and Wolf

If its like this.Then yes please


Also are they putting a love line in this? Look at the description of the female lead:


"If Seo Ye Ji accepts the offer, she will be portraying Ha Jae Yi who lived a self-directed life since she was a kindergartener. She becomes a great lawyer who fights for justice but ends up getting demoted after attacking a judge. She meets lawyer Bong Sang Pil following her demotion and they get tied up with each other."

I remember TBDW wasnt marketed as a love action story but it did have a love line. Look at wikipedia:


Soo-hyun(Lee Joon Gi) met Ji-woo (Nam Sang-mi) when they were about twelve years old and has another fateful encounter with her 10 years later. Together they have promises for the future.

The only difference from TBDW with this drama, from what I am reading is that the two dont have a childhood history together. Anyways bring it on.Good luck to everyone and lets have fun.

Lee Joon-gi and Seo Ye-ji Confirm "Lawless Lawyer"




Some good news for Lee Joon-gi and Seo Ye-ji fans today! The actors have confirmed their roles in upcoming revenge drama, "Lawless Lawyer". As previously reported, the series is about a lawyer who prefers using his fists, rather than the law, to seek revenge from the corrupt powerful. After witnessing his mother's cruel death as a child, revenge becomes his sole motivator.


This is a reunion between Lee Joon-gi and director Kim Jin-min-I, as the two worked together in "Time Between Dog and Wolf", a turning point in the actor's career. The production has pointed out this reunion, while it has also stated that Lee Joon-gi has a charm that attracts people, and that viewers should anticipate his dramatic transformation.


"Lawless Lawyer" has also been courting actress Seo Ye-ji for a leading role, which makes this project even more interesting for me. I had been a non-fan, to put it lightly, of her acting during "The Night Watchman's Journal", but "Save Me" showed me potential and growth that I can definitely get behind. According to Osen, the actress has just confirmed her role.


"Lawless Lawyer" is helmed by PD Kim Jin-min-I and written by Yoon Hyeon-ho. It will be airing after "Live" in May on tvN.

Saying hi to everyone. I'm here. Won't be active yet (probably not for next couple of months), but I'm here.

Very excited for JG. This could turn out to be quite a cerebral drama, and I hope we'll get to see him in a lot of suits and formal wear... Yum!!! ^_^^_^  And Seo Ye-ji is a reliable co-star. Looking great!


Thanks for all the updates. Love ya all.

I'm definitely watching this! Finally, this gorgeous fine looking man has returned to my life with his next drama! And loved Seo Ye Ji in Save Me, never thought I would see her paired up with my most favorite Korean actor!


I really hope we get some romance in this. I can't help it but I love LJG in shows that involve romance! He can be so romantic, sexy and adorable, it makes me melt!
